Seasons Greetings with Molly

Hello :-) Been on a bit of a crafting hiatus - but, have got a few things to do, so my posts should be getting more frequent! Got plenty of new rubber and DT work to crack on with!
Well, went to a fabulous day out last weekend at The PaperLane in Northallerton - I was at a workshop with Clare Rowlands, designer of Molly Blooms (bit of an addiction forming....).

I made this sample for Caz and Sarah - I made it using the new Christmas Molly Blooms stamps, and some MASSIVE craftwork cards blanks! I wondered what I was going to do with all the space - there was definitely plenty to play with!
Don't you just love the little gingerbread men? I could have coloured them in all day! Here is a close up because I adore them! The papers are Dovecraft, and the lovely border punch is a new Martha Stewart punch that arrived in store - and screams rather loudly for liberal doses of prisma glitter! So, I had to oblige! The sentiment stamp is from Hero Arts.
Thanks to Clare for a great day, and thanks Caz & Sarah for letting us play with all the lovely products! Got me into a really festive mood - so bring on Christmas! Lol!

See you soon - thanks for looking! Kxx

Piles of Presents!

Hello again! Here is the second card this week for the PaperLane - I loved using this stamp. It is part of the new Molly Blooms designs for Christmas. This is 'Pile of Presents'. It has been coloured with Copics, and teamed up with the lovely Dovecraft 'Let it Snow' papers. The ribbons were white - I have coloured them with Copics to match the image. There are liberal doses of Pearl and Gloss Pens by Viva for good measure!! The sentiment is a Craftwork Cards die cut, which has been mounted on the matching papers and cardstock.
The image has been highlighted with Prisma Glitter and Viva Gloss Pens. The papers are glittery too, so that they look really festive!

I loved playing with this image - can't wait for the 23rd October - I will be doing a workshop with Clare of Molly Blooms at the PaperLane. It will be great to be able to play and chat all day long.......and be able to shop downstairs too!!

Thanks for visiting!

Time Flies - Been Having Fun!!

Hello All! Including my lovely cyber stalker who emailed me to say I hadn't updated!! Lol! Hope this is ok! Well - apologies for the delay in posting! Have been out and about having fun! Bev and I have recently been on a couple of wanders - which happened to take in the Great Northern Papercrafts Extravaganza,  Sir Stampalot and the hugely extended Stamp Attic - so wanted to make one of the rooms my own!! We had a great time - here is a pic of the lovely hotel gardens that were near our room on the SS and SA trip. If it hadn't have been threatening rain I would have quite happily sat and read for a while!
Which brings me to my second reason for not posting!! Have managed to do a Twlight Marathon, completing all four books in five days! That was totally Bev's fault - she gave me them to read and POW!! Bit addicted (TEAM JACOB!!)!! So my glitter and stamps were put away for a little while.

Finally! Here is the card. This has been created for The PaperLane. I love this Tilda - I have seen her done in really bright colours, and thought that it would be worth trying some lovely muted colours - almost monochrome. She has been coloured with Copics, and the papers are DCWV - La Creme Stack. The lovely flowery paper that is visible is  flocked, so there is a lovely bit of texture. The pearl swirl has been done with my trusty Viva Decor Pearl Pens! The sentiment is Hero Arts.
She is safely in the hands of Caz and Sarah in the shop now - so thought I would post her here. Will be back soon with more!

Thanks so much for visiting! Have a great day!
